got a bad one

CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-850TX 850 W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V v2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-850TX 850 W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V v2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: I've put this power supply in a number of customer cases without incident.

Cons: I have had ONE customer use this P/S and it failed outside of Newegg's return policy. Corsair replaced the defective (only 12V showed any power) P/S. Only out shipping & time.

Overall Review: I'd buy this P/S again

Long Term Report

KINGWIN AWC-1 Liquid Cooler System
KINGWIN AWC-1 Liquid Cooler System

Pros: I ordered this cooler from Newegg on 05/16/05. I modified the installation from the instructions provided, placing the auxilliary radiator in the loop between the CPU & video card. This yielded a CPU temp that idled around 32C, with video temps reading 2-3 degrees higher. Very nice!

Cons: The pump failed after about 6 months. Kingwin was kind enough to let me exchange just the pump unit so I wouldn't have remove the mainboard to get the waterblock off of it (as well as all the other rigging that goes into this installation). The new pump worked well........until last Saturday (05-20-06). I now have another dead pump.

Overall Review: I better go, thermal levels are rising on this thing. Gotta see what I can get to replace the pump unit with....

Not what I thought it would be.....

Logitech Z623 200 Watts 2.1 Speaker System, THX-Certified
Logitech Z623 200 Watts 2.1 Speaker System, THX-Certified

Pros: Durability, I hope....

Cons: Nothing spectacular

Overall Review: I am the proud owner of a set of Logitech Z-2200s that I bought about 7 years ago. They still amaze me. They are attached to the 50" TV setting in my family room. I also purchased a set of Klipsh Pro Media 2.1 to use on my computer. They were crystal clear, but lacked the bass "punch" of the 2200s. This was good until a couple of months ago when the Klipsh sub woofer blew..... The satellites still sounded great, just no bass. I ordered these Logitech Z623s in hopes that they woud amaze me as well....................they didn't. Overall the sound is fairly clean (for computer speakers). I just miss the "kick in the gut" bass.

Sweet!

Pros: Bought this for a customer & this thing had me watering at the mouth. What a display. I wanted one immediately.

Overall Review: Buy this monitor

Pinnacle 230100124 MovieBoard Plus
Pinnacle 230100124 MovieBoard Plus

Pros: I plugged it up & it worked. Only thing I have done with this so far is capture from the camera.

Cons: It won't perform actions as I think about them. Requires input from user!

Overall Review: It's a Pinnacle!

No Go

COOLMAX NW-650B 650W ATX12V v2.2 SLI Ready / CrossFire Ready and Compatible with Core i3/i5/i7 Power Supply
COOLMAX NW-650B 650W ATX12V v2.2 SLI Ready / CrossFire Ready and Compatible with Core i3/i5/i7 Power Supply

Pros: It is cheap

Cons: -5 volt didn't work. CPU & Video fans "twitched" then nothing. Case fans worked like a champ! Everything else lit up.

Overall Review: I have several dollars tied up in this box & can't use it for at least 10-14 days waiting on the RMA.
